Succulent Focaccia Bread Recipe

Hello my glamorous Friends I hope you are all well . Now is bread is not easy to make but it is super delicious as well and I'm thrilled that I'm sharing this recipe with you guys . So lets get started ,


Serves 6-8


4 cups All Purpose Flour¼ cup

Extra Virgin Olive Oil1

 Tbsp Kosher Salt1 cup

 Warm Water (about 110 degrees Fahrenheit)

2 Tbsp Sugar1 Package Dry Yeast1½

 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Rosemary 4 Cloves Garlic Thinly Sliced

Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Drizzling

Kosher Salt and Coarse Ground Black Pepper (to sprinkle over top)


1) In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a dough hook, proof the yeast by combining it with the warm water and sugar. Stir gently to dissolve. Let stand 3 minutes until foam appears.


2) Turn mixer on low and slowly add the flour to the bowl. Dissolve salt in 2 tablespoons of water and add it to the mixture. Pour in 1/4 cup olive oil.


3) When the dough starts to come together, increase the speed to medium. Stop the machine periodically to scrape the dough off the hook. Mix until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.


4) Turn the dough out onto a work surface and fold it over itself a few times. Form the dough into a round ball and place in an oiled bowl, turn to coat the entire ball with oil so it doesn't form a skin. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place until double in size about 1 hour and 10 minutes.


5) Coat a sheet pan with a little olive oil and corn meal. Once the dough is doubled and domed, turn it out onto an oiled baking sheet. Stretch the dough out to an rectangular shape (same size as the baking sheet) about 1/2-inch thick. Lay the flattened dough on the pan and cover with plastic wrap. Let rest for 20 minutes.


6) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.


7) Once rested uncover and drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with the chopped rosemary, sliced garlic, and salt and pepper. Cover once again and let it rest for 25 minutes.


8) Bake on the bottom rack for 20 minutes, or until its golden brown.


This focaccia is perfect along with a selection of cheeses or a lovely spicy dip .
